Return to Puerto Rico! ... Two-Player Format

Puerto Rico's golden age returns. Through you and this card game sequel! Players travel now to the capital city of this beautiful island. Who will build the most important buildings? Players build palaces, poor houses, silver smelters, gold mines, and many others - each with its own special features. The cleverest player will build best and win!

As with the boardgame, players choose roles which can help all players, but the choosing player gets a special privilege with the role chosen. Players build buildings, produce and sell goods, and so on. The game is based on Puerto Rico, but is different enough to give players new challenges and opportunities for fun and enjoyment.

Are you a eurogamer that laments the fact that all of the WBC Pre-cons heretofore have been wargames?  Now is your chance to get laurels before the WBC proper. Play in San Juan is free to Tribune level members. All others must be registered in the Sampler Showcase to participate.

This year, a vastly different format will be used. For starters, games will be 2-, not 4-player, making it imperative that players bring a copy of the game if they wish to play. If games are in short supply, and they almost certainly will be, priority will be given to those with games first.

There will be four swiss rounds starting at 11 AM with players matched by their records after Round 1. After four rounds, those with at least three wins will qualify and continue to Single Elimination play.

We will be using the optional rule wherein the first player starts with five cards and the second player starts with six cards. Both players will then discard down to four cards.
